GHG emission reduction costs and potentials and assessment of post-kyoto climate change mitigation regimes impact on energy options in Lithuania

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A discussion covers the local and international greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction options; the case of Lithuania as a local GHG emission reduction options taking into account costs of GHG reduction and potentials; most popular international post-Kyoto climate change mitigation regimes. e.g., Continuing Kyoto, Multistage Approach; evaluation according to their sustainability criteria, i.e., their possible economic, environmental, social, and political impact on groups of countries; major conflicts that need to be addressed with care in future climate negotiations, i.e., economic efficiency vs. environmental effectiveness, involvement of developing countries, mitigation vs. adaptation and extension of Kyoto or development of new Protocol; most serious conflict that lies within the fundamental approach to the problem of climate change; sustainability assessment of post-Kyoto climate change mitigation regimes; requirements for GHG emission reduction set by the most sustainable international post-Kyoto climate change mitigation regimes for group of countries and the impact of these requirements on energy supply options. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 24th World Gas Conference (Buenos Aires, Argentina 10/5-9/2009).
